Yoga 2 Pro CPU stays at 800 MHz when in tent/tablet/stand-mode

2016-09-03, 22:31 PM

Hello,

 

I think the subject of this thread describes exactly the issue i have on my Yoga 2 Pro.

 

In Laptop mode everything works fine but as soon as I enter the stand, tent or tablet mode (i.e. display angle > 180°) the CPU of the system stays at 800 Mhz all the time and wont speed up. Of course the system works extremely slow on 800 MHz. Its just not usable.

When changing to laptop mode everything works fine again.

 

I have tried different energy modes in the windows settings but it didnt have any effect.

Solved! See the solution

Hey, this solution worked for me! :)

Thank you very much.

 

Sorry, i couldn't find this even after half an hour in google. Maybe i was just searching for the wrong terms...

 

But...how come that there is still a faulty Intel DPTF driver online @lenovo?

I have contacted and contacted and contacted Lenovo over the last 18 months about this as wells as a screen flicker problem that I have with my Yoga 2 Pro.  Problems all started when I updated to Win 10 2yrs ago.  They kept telling me they were working on a driver update for Win 10 that would be coming very soon, and I naively kept believing them.  I will never buy Lenovo again because of this lack of support.

Hi Damien,

I'm not defending Lenovo (I too have some reservations regarding they're support) but both problems you describe have been resolved with drivers. Now, these updated drivers don't show up in Lenovo site, you have to manually force the update (Control panel\Device manager) right click on affected device (graphics and DTPF) and choose update driver. And a more robust solution would be to install Windows 10 from scratch (but you'd have to reinstall and reconfigure everything).
